Brett King and Chris Skinner host Breaking Banks, which takes us through the basics of blockchain in this first of a five-show series.

On today’s Breaking Banks, I’m joined by co-host Chris Skinner, author of ValueWeb, to begin our five-week series delving deep into the subject of blockchain. This episode is about the basics of blockchain: What is blockchain? What is bitcoin? What is Ethereum? And what is all the news about a hard fork?

Theo Priestley, a top fintech thought leader and writer, Simon Taylor, director of blockchain at 11:FS, and John Lilic, director of business enterprise at ConsenSys, all join to explain the basics and clarify what you thought you knew!
